    that I have forgotten to buy any wrapping paper to wrap her special Valentines Day gift in, and so have improvised by using some spare wallpaper:blush:

    Personally, I think I am in the clear if I can keep her out of the lounge until I get chance to re-decorate, obviously, this assumes she will forget about the current wall covering in the lounge:wacko:

    Hang on, I just posted a response. Where's it gone?
     
  4. In short, yes. She'll notice. Has she stashed any spare bits of wrapping paper anywhere, post christmas? Might be worth a look.

    Mrs F is not keen on unnecessary extravagance (;) cheaper for me!! :angry:)
    so I spent 76p on a heart shaped piece of chocolate on a stick, wrote her a poem, and left both on kitchen table this morning (I was out to work early) along with a flower plucked from our garden. She sent me a gooey txt msg, so it seems to have done the trick! :rolleyes:

    Just don't leave it against the wall, as you'll never find it again!

    I'd just be impressed you'd been organised enough to get a present!! And Fnaar, that's cute...

    Probably a bit late. But if you use sealing wax and ribbon it will look like really fancy paper. If you use sellotape, it will look like you have wrapped her present up in old wall paper.

    Also, it depends on the wallpaper, and you should note that woodchip is especially unsuitable for irony.

    Also bear in mind that some women see Valentines Day as naff and schlocky and will give you grief for getting involved when there is another 364 days that you could do something special or buy flowers and choccies.

    How did it go?
    I'm not a fan of Valentines day, although I did get a new bike yesterday, but that was a coincidence.
    i tend to wrap my presents in newspaper so old wallpaper sounds nice to me.

    Well surprisingly it went very well. She thought the wallpaper was hilarious, and she was very grateful for the present and the pre-run hot bath, with candles and music playing in the bathroom after her run:tongue:;)
